chronic illness, take the medication. sometimes it is not compliant and a lot of it is living without understanding the long- term repercussions. let's take hypertension that affects women and men. if you go to the dialysis centers, who is sitting there getting dialyzed? it is black people. they have not lost weight, stop smoking, moderation in alcohol. there are so many things we can do but we have become a society of super sizing everything and we just moderate, try some new things. a lot of these illnesses are so simple to treat. it takes self and we have to get out of this thought of having what i call access to convenience foods. it is quick and fast but sometimes you have to go back in your home and we learn things and your grandmother, great- grandmother's did every day. cook, cook for yourself.
